Description - Women in Islam by Anne-Sofie Roald
This text investigates the ongoing debate, in both the Muslim world and the West, on the position of women in Islam. Anne Sofie Roald illustrates how Islamic perceptions of women and gender relations change in Western Muslim communities. She shows how Islamic attitudes towards social concerns, such as gender relations, female circumcision and Islamic female dress emerge as responsive to culture and context, rather than rigid and inflexible, as is often perceived.
